Put Me Back Into Employment

Location/Country: Agios Theodoros, Larnaca, Cyprus

Project Dates: 20/03/2014 - 28/03/2014 (8 days)

Project Description:

Currently youth unemployment in Europe is over 20% and this number is growing year by year.  Youth face endless employment problems and obstacles and although this is a major priority for the EU very little is achieved to decrease these numbers.  We have seen that although there are many tools available to youth to help reduce these numbers youth are either not aware of these tools or have lost hope.  Our project aims to look at the problems of various youth from different EU countries so that we can find common problems and solutions to these problems.  We aim to look at the tools available to the youth today and ways that we can promote these within the youth of Europe.  We will look at different methods that we can help each other and reduce youth unemployment in Europe.  We will explore the option of working in other countries and also see the difficulties associated with this option.  We will have professionals talk to the youth about developing good CVs and also making the youth more employable in Europe.
